You mmap memory against an RTDM device handle, the only difference to 
mmap against a Linux device is who provides the memory. Releasing that 
mapping is just the same as with Linux: call munmap.

If your driver has anything to do on release, register vmops with the 
backing vma. See e.g. spi_master_mmap.
